THE Sinnington Point-to-Point takes place on Sunday at Duncombe Park with a six-race card.

A total of 85 entries have been received, with the action starting at 12.30pm.

Early-bird tickets can be bought online for £9 from, otherwise admission on the day is £10.

The opening race, the Hunt Members, is usually dominated by the Easterby team and they have four of the seven runners in this one. However, they will come up against Stratford and champion hunter chase winner Young Hurricane, a revelation last year who may not be halted by a 5lb penalty.

The Confined Hunts race has received 16 entries and at the top of the list is Dance Of Time, a recent cosy winner at Sheriff Hutton.

The Restricted appears to be one of the most competitive races of the day.

Ballinahow Bill, a very easy winner of his maiden at Sheriff Hutton, could be the one to beat with John Dawson on board, deputising for the injured Lottie Crane.

The Mixed Open holds 14 entries but several are double entered. Battle Range looks to have a huge chance if on song, although he is best on quicker ground and has been absent for a long time. The one to watch might instead be the Pimlott team's new recruit, Young Dillon, who has previously finished second at Haydock off a mark of 131.

The Novice and Veteran Riders' race looks to be an open contest. You Too Pet, a recent runner-up at Sheriff Hutton, looks to have the race at his mercy, although Iron Chancellor had some decent form last season.

The final race, the Open Maiden, has 22 entries, with Jaxlight looking the one to fear. Formerly with Dan Skelton, he has joined Justin Landy's in-form yard - Landy having enjoyed 23 winners from 29 runners in points this term.
